I’m so excited–my dear friend Karen has begun writing for her blog again. She is the talented cook behind Squeaky Peanut, and her first new entry has a delicious-sounding Pink Grapefruit Sorbet, the perfect dessert for the late miserable weather. I don’t know whether she’s going to pick another cookbook project, but she spent all of 2010 cooking the Martha Stewart Dinner At Home cookbook, and if I never have to vicariously partake of another miserable weird salad, it’ll be too soon. But hey, at least I didn’t have to eat them!
In other news, Skew is going…poorly, at least if I plan to wear them. I’d been trying them on, but once I got past the heel, I couldn’t get it up over the ankle. I figure I can save them for someone with smaller feet, or frog the one partially completed sock and work on something else. That’s disappointing. It’s not that I feel I have soooo much work into them, but I’ve had a hard time making socks that fit me, and these were looking good for that. Plus, I wanted to finish something for myself, and these were looking good for that too. There’s going to be a KAL for people on the Ivory Tower board in a month or so, and that’s for a cardigan, so that’s something. I haven’t been ambitious about a sweater in a while, though. Maybe if the weather turns warm again, I won’t be disappointed about the idea of frogging a sock. My feet have been cold this evening–what a pleasant problem to have after this past week!
